you're a swirlies fan? figures i guess but i'd have had them as too childish for you

you missed "a little man and a house"!!

frogbs, Saturday, 7 September 2013 15:48 (1 year ago) Permalink

their worst album frogbs. sorry but it's true. still great but less so. imo, obv

its probably my 3rd favorite. I dunno, they're all worthy of laudation. What did you think of the Knifeworld album? (if you've heard it?) - it sucks that Tim obviously isn't on it, but IMO it's the next best thing

frogbs, Saturday, 7 September 2013 15:54 (1 year ago) Permalink

knifeworld album was cool & had a couple of screamers (unwreckaged, me to the future of you). also their recept eps have been good, maybe even better than the debut album material. monsoon bassoon album was obviously very good

the william d drake album in the list is my favourite non-tim-smith spin-off, but his solo album & spratleys japs are amazing as well

thumpermonkey are also cardiacs-influenced, u shd hear them

yeah it's very solid. "Pissed up on Brake Fluid" sounds like something that would fit on a later day Cardiacs album. that said I feel their second album is going to blow it out of the water.

if you could pick 5 of these for me to hear, what would it be?

frogbs, Saturday, 7 September 2013 21:55 (1 year ago) Permalink

v difficult question that depends on what you've already heard. given what i know already

ulver - blood inside
mansun - six
kayo dot - dowsing anemone with copper tongue
william d drake - the rising of the lights
thumpermonkey - we bake our bread beneath her holy fire

^^^if you leave this with mind unblown you can have your money back idk. they're mostly available on youtube or bandcamp

but the foetus, lapsus linguae and neurosis are also exceptionally important

voted Talk Talk...kinda boring choice, sorry!

I'd like to hear frogbs take on the Lapsus record.

Your description of The Terse Crimp is bang on LJ, I love that song.

I'm sure I've said this before, don't sleep on the Sea Nymphs records and also the Shrubbies record which was produced by Tim.

Ah this is cool. Forgot to say that North Sea Radio Orchestra's last album (I A Moon) is really superb and not far from any Top 50 list I could make (it's also dedicated to Tim Smith, albeit a little folkier and mellower than Cardiacs usually are). Similar personnel to Shrubbies iirc.

ah yes, the 'nice little songs then monster title-track wig-out' trick. tends to obscure the littler songs a bit

I've heard the other two NSRO albums, both of them are pretty good. They sound a lot like Penguin Cafe Orchestra but I like NSRO better. You may like Birds a lot if you haven't heard it.

Just heard the Ulver album, metal isn't really in my wheelhouse (yet) but this is much different than that, very interesting and definitely not something I can really discern on one listen. I decided to listen to an earlier Ulver album too and it's very interesting, I can see why you like them.

Now listening to Mansun - Six...reminds me a bit of Mars Volta but not quite as over-the-top or obnoxious. Very good stuff so far.

lj what do you think of this

Lama Bloody SwagYurt (Nilmar Honorato da Silva), Tuesday, 17 September 2013 00:50 (1 year ago) Permalink

deeply melancholy, effective synth build, simple melodic themes; basically a 3-minute mogwai song without guitars

v pretty but without the complexity or subtlety of narrative that really sets me off

some solo eno does appeal to me; my favourite stuff is on 'here come the warm jets', especially the cataclysmic descent into misanthropy that is 'driving me backwards'

jets is the most lj friendly of the 70s song lps for sure

do you know on land? probably the most lj friendly of the ambient serie

Lama Bloody SwagYurt (Nilmar Honorato da Silva), Tuesday, 17 September 2013 08:51 (1 year ago) Permalink

Not at all. May investigate. I'd like to get into electronic music more, but artists like NWW, Current 93 etc have punishingly enormous discographies, dissuading me from the whole enterprise. Even The Fall took a long time to click.
